Croft Filters will be offering a short introductory course to Additive Manufacturing (AM) at the 13th World Filtration Congress (WFC13) in San Diego, California in April 2020.
The company has seen the growth of the AM industry as part of Industry 4.0 and aims to support academic research to help identify new applications for this technology. In 2017 Croft launched its Additive Manufacturing workshop, a non-academic masterclass which teaches existing and potential AM users about its full capabilities.
Director Neil Burns will be leading the course at WFC13. Using his expertise in production using AM he will show how it is applied within the filtration industry via wedge wire, woven mesh, perforated plate, filter housings and component parts, as well as a hybrid of conventional manufacturing and AM.
Croft will provide detailed insight into the fundamentals of AM throughout the four-hour introductory course using case studies relating to the filtration industry. It will cover the process and development of additive industrial parts, as well as information on Designing for Additive Manufacture (DfAM) and how it differs from conventional design.
